Erik, one of our colleagues at Random House (you remember Erik…one of his cats was the RH Employee Pet of the Month and the other has amazing skill with doors) has launched a blog called Fat Cat Lover that is stirring up quite a bit of controversy. Featuring tubby tabbies, the blog claims to be a “daily appreciation of the curvy cat.”
While some people think these hefty hairballers are as cute as can be, others are not so amused. They claim that this is no laughing matter since overweight pets can suffer from a variety of health problems and have a shorter life span. Fat Cat Lover (and some of the comments left by enraged readers) was recently featured in The New York Post and on the Today show website. Click through for more details on the drama.
So please weigh in (sorry, couldn’t resist). What do YOU think? Adorable or horrible?
